Honduran election controversy continues

Last week, electoral authorities in Honduras declared Juan Orlando Hernandez as winner of the country’s presidential election. But his opponent, Xiomara Castro, says the results are fraudulent. Castro is the wife of former president Manuel Zelaya, who was ousted in a coup in 2009. Over the weekend, thousands turned out in Tegucigalpa to march in her support. A recount of the vote was reportedly scheduled to start Wednesday, but didn’t. We talk with Vickie Cervantes and Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle. Both are with the group La Voz de los de Abajo. They went on an observer delegation to monitor the Honduran vote. (Photo: AP/Fernando Antonio)
